WHAT? Who told you HID lights are bad? They ARE the best. Look at any luxury car maker, BMW, Lexus, Mercedes Benz, Audi, etc.... they all use hid lights in their car models. Let me guess, that guy told you " no don't get HID's.... go get the 5 dollar cheapos at pepboys"...

HID lights can be better, but you should understand a few basic things about them.1) The best way to utilize HID is with projector headlights. Most halogen based headlights are reflector headlights. If you go on eBay and buy one of those plug-and-play kits (which are, btw, illegal) you WILL be blinding oncoming drivers.2) While blue lights may look 'cool', they aren't any better than your stock lights. Matter of fact, they are probably worse. The actual lumens output they give off is less than the stock yellow light of a halogen beam. The best color temperature to have is 4300 K (K = Kelvin). It is a clean, white light which provides the best amount of lighting. Kits which go to 6000K (bluish), 8000K (purplish), or higher, are actually pretty useless and are a quick way to get plenty of tickets.My recommendation is to find out what type of bulb your headlights are and find a good replacement bulb by someone like Osram/Sylvania or Phillips. Or if you want to go down the HID route, look into get a HID-projector retrofit performed on your headlights.

The stock lights are as good as any, unless you are blind, if so, you should not be driving.

I hope the "bad ****" is "bad" as in "good." I had the Catz HID in my 96 Integra. The lighting was about 4000k lumens. Full "plug in and play". No special tools, cutting, or other harnesses needed. It ran about $500, but well worth it.
